Emergency Department Risk Management Program

US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) has achieved exceptional, industry-leading results in malpractice risk management and patient safety. Our proactive hospital risk management program brings together nationally recognized experts in integrated acute care and medical malpractice to develop essential risk management strategies.

To help prevent patient injuries and deaths, we diligently collect and analyze reliable patient safety information. We use this outcome data analysis to uncover the core malpractice risks in the emergency department and address those risks with continuing medical education. This multifaceted approach helps to identify medico-legal risks before they become medico-legal cases and protects our patients from harm.

One-of-a-kind-lawsuit management

Even the most compliant medical risk management behaviors may not be able to prevent all malpractice claims. Our claims management program ensures clinicians receive support, guidance and expert legal representation if they are the targets of a lawsuit. In addition, USACS provides all of its clinicians going through a claim with a peer mentor to assist them in coping with mental and emotional stress of litigation.

FailSafe 24/7 on-call system

The USACS FailSafe program provides clinicians with 24/7 phone access to experienced senior physicians. FailSafe decreases risks and ensures our clinicians are never alone in managing a potentially risky situation.
